All of Caroline's boyfriends seem to leave her or cheat on her. On her way home from work two men try to rape Caroline. An introverted man from her work, Adam, rescues her. Adam is an orphan and he is told that he's got a baboon's heart. Adam opens up to Caroline and together they make sense. Adam and Caroline are very happy together but the rapists try to get back at Adam and not everyone accepts
Magic records and baboon hearts. Really brings me back to when I was a kid growing up in Minneapolis.
This is a really weird film. Marisa Tomei plays a waitress who has trouble attracting men (no, really ... you're supposed to believe that). When she's rather brutally assaulted by some customers on the way home from work, she's saved by the reclusive bus boy (Christian Slater) who seems to be obsessed with her. The two fall in love, and the movie stoops to the most egregiously awful literalized metaphor you can imagine. On the bright side, Tomei gets naked.
Hilarious.. unfortunately for those involved not on purpose, however.
Have always liked this one, haven't seen it in awhile though, so will be updating my rating when I watch.
The loveliest love story with a saaaaaad ending. I could watch it every day.
